Santa Barbara City Fire Department Celebrates 14 Promotions

The ceremony is the largest in the department's 129-year history

Santa Barbara City Fire Chief Andrew DiMizio presided over the department’s promotional ceremony at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse last Saturday.

With 14 promotions taking place, the ceremony had historical significance, making it the largest promotional event in the 129-year history of the city fire department.

With family and friends in attendance, each promotional recipient was presented a new badge to signify their new rank, with a family member selected to perform the ceremonial pinning.

The ceremony took place in the historic Mural Room of the Courthouse.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
